Nuneaton Borough emerged with their respect fully intact after
taking on Spurs at Manor Park last night.
The Londoners, who fielded a virtual reserve side, scored just either side of half time
to secure the win but Borough, who used their full squad, gave them a tough examination.
Borough striker Malcolm Christie caused the Spurs defence problems throughout and could
well have grabbed an early goal.
James Bunn put the visitors in front just a minute before the interval when he
converted a centre from Ross Darcy.
Nuneaton could have hit back when Ian Muir was stopped just short of goal, but
Tottenham reacted at the start of the second half and Aussie Carlos Gonzales scored.
Borough responded and won a penalty eight minutes from time but Anton Thomass
sport kick was easily saved by keeper Andy Marriott.
